I've seen a thread like this on multiple forums so I think a thread like this may be fun to have on this forum.


Here you can talk random things...talk about your life, what you're doing, literally anything you can think of!


Currently...I am sick :/ I have a cold and it definitely sucks :/


And how are you doing fellow forumers? (forumers is not a word but who cares :D )

Y'know...I am also someone who really likes being in this forum. 

And at the same time, there is something I keep thinking of once in a while.

How come that a not-so-small number of people join, make a few posts, and then don't even reply to e.g. their own introduction thread any more, not to mention any other threads? Don't want to sound like complaining. Simply wondering a little bit. And yes, I also had been sometimes absent for a few days. But still... does anybody have any thoughts on that one?

Maybe they don't see all their notifications?

Now that just might be the explanation.

Although that wouldn't be a big sensation.

In my case, I used to check and answer every single notification but now, I don't because I often find it overwhelming to receive a notification for every single reply. 


Is it just me? LOL

Could it be that you built your tents in much more threads than I did?

Because I find it underwhelming. I sometimes wish that there was more going on.

Well idk, for me personally I don't always have something smart to reply and I don't want to just reply something for the sake of replying. Sometiems I like the replies made to my comments instead of replying.


And as of this thread..well my idea was just for this thread to exist cause I've seen so many threads like this on other forums so I wanted this thread to exist without it being related to the rest of the forum, just people writing something about their day or a movie/book they've watched/read, or talking about some personal problems...


Idk, I viewed this thread as a "just write whatever" so you can get it off your chest thread haah


And @Rose, I feel the same haha :D In the stsart I tried to reply or like every single reply but now I get too many responses so I just view some threads and not every single notification I get :/

When there are like 5 or more replies to 5 different threads, that's overwhelming for me. And if I don't have any value to add or can't keep the conversation going, I just don't reply anymore. 


Also sometimes, I prefer to just silently read what's going on. I'm a silent reader in many of the online groups and communities I'm part of. I don't engage much but I join for the support/learning it offers. Maybe many are like that too. 



Everyday is a learning journey. Keep going!

This. Me too. 


Even on Facebook, when people comment on my own posts and I can't think of anything to say, I just like the comments and leave them hanging. LOL

Now to answer this -

Saturday's so-so. Trying to catch up with some online work for this week since I missed my work days since Monday because we had to bring my baby to the hospital. She was admitted for 7 days and we just got home yesterday. Gaaad, I didn't realize how expensive medical bills and doctors' fees are these days. But so glad, she's fine now.. so back to work!

Everyday is a learning journey. Keep going!

Never happened to me in this forum. Could be because I didn't "subscribe" to too many threads yet.

I seeee...

Maybe many conversations (no matter between whom and whom) die like this?
